I think I’ve finally, officially, fallen for the athleisure trend. I’m a very active person as it is, so I have my decent little collection of gym clothing, but I really wasn’t ever into activewear as every day wear, per se. Over the years, as “athleisure” has taken a front seat in the style world, I’ve discovered several brands (like Zobha), that have made me drool. I like darker, edgier, more creative street-style elements, and there has been plenty of that on the market sold as activewear lately. I prefer outerwear rather than leggings and tops when it comes to everyday wear (as I still prefer saving those for the gym) but there have been a lot of awesome pieces out that are starting to pull me in that direction. Now, I just found the popular and trend-breaking denim brand Diesel has solidified their stake in the athleisure industry with Diesel X, and these pieces are hitting all of my tastes.
Diesel is known for pushing boundaries and being rather edgy, so it’s no surprise that they’ve taken this activewear thing in a whole new fashion. This activewear is made to wear to “battle the elements” in urban life, worn on the streets for “living life to the max.” From jackets to tops to pants to dresses and a whole lot more, these items are made to withstand the elements, with UV, wind and water protection as well as antibacterial innovations. They all feature bold, graphic prints and cuts, as a beautiful blend of style meets function. Diesel touts Diesel X as “The new city uniform.” Everything looks so insanely stylish, you could wear these anywhere you want heads to turn! I don’t know about you, but I’m drooling. Here are the pieces that caught my eye the most.
“City life is not for the faint-hearted, and neither is Diesel X. Made for protection and performance, this collection transcends traditional workout wear to cater for every aspect of life. Work, rest and play with superior technology and comfort fits.”
“Inspired by the speed and style of city life, Diesel X is made for living life to the max. Weather the elements with wind and water protection; glow up with our UV styles; and stand out with bold graphic prints.”
“Style and function come together to birth a sleek and minimal aesthetic in a concrete jungle-inspired palette. Wind and waterproof materials, UV protection and antibacterial innovations make Diesel X the new city uniform.”
